“You use hypnosis not as a cure but as a means of establishing a favorable climate in which to learn.”
Milton H Erickson
Hypnotherapy seeks to help you change your patterns of behaviour, habits and thought processes. Whilst in a state of hypnosis the unconscious mind is more open to receiving new ideas and changing some old learnt behaviour enabling for easier, rapid change. Change that can lead to success in reaching your goals.
The feeling of hypnosis is most closely described as that of a daydream. While you are in it, you may not be aware you are in it but when it’s over you definitely know something happened. That something is the therapy in hypnotherapy. Suggestions of change, growth and healing.
Most simply, hypnotherapy is the use of natural trance to provide the unconscious mind with new learning, new discoveries and new feelings that lead you to be more resourceful in your day to day life.
Some reasons to choose hypnotherapy:
- Hypnotherapy is a brief talk therapy. This means the aim of hypnotherapy is to resolve your issues and achieve your goals. In hypnotherapy we discuss the number of sessions you may need, not the number of years.
- Other modalities of newer therapies quite often treat the symptoms but not the causes resulting in a short period of success and then falling back into familiar patterns. Hypnotherapy on the other hand treats the causes unconsciously resulting in long lasting change where not only is the problem solved, but better solutions are installed.
- Hypnotherapy is a mature therapy. The practice of using hypnosis to instill change has been used all throughout recorded history. We’ve had many centuries to refine our processes and we’re still learning.
- Hypnosis is a natural process which feels good.
